Silver Swan (01 - Helen Alexandros)
Real Name: Helen Alexandros
Search for 'Silver Swan (01 - Helen Alexandros)' on Amazon


Powers:
Super strength, flight, and her 'Swan song" (much like Black Canary's).

Weaknesses:
Helen could only maintain the form of the Silver Swan for an hour.

Bio:
While on a tour with her ballet troupe in Europe, Helen overheard that their manager needed a new head ballerina, but it would never be Helen because she was so ugly. She happened to be in an ancient theater near Athens, and when she cried out "Why did you make me so plain -- in a world that values beauty over everything?' the god Ares answered her. He told her that she was named for the beautiful Helen of Troy, who brought death and destruction to its men. He offered to transform her into that Helen's likeness, if she would serve his cause. She eagerly agreed, and the god dubbed her the Silver Swan. Helen could become the Silver Swan up to an hour at a time, and he promised her that, if she killed his arch-foe Wonder Woman, she would become the Silver Swan forever.

Notes:
Actually, writer Roy Thomas used the Roman equivalent Mars. The "Wonder Woman" stories weren't too careful about their pantheons.
